We have a lab!
« on: July 07, 2015, 06:56:40 PM »

Next steps:


Agree on some safety and safety training stuff.

Get a weekly/bi-weekly bio waste disposal pickup scheduled. (I started to get this set up a long time ago, and will resume working on it after some discussion w/ the board)

Build some stuff:
   Laminar hood
   OpenPCR
   OpenQPCR (soon)
   Incubators

Find/buy some stuff
   Autoclave (I have one, but it is tiny)
   Centrifuge (we have one somewhere)
   More Incubators (we had one somewhere)

Schedule some kit-based classes so we can get some practice in with a reasonable chance of success
   Basic GFP transformation
   Grow some stuff that glows
   Depending on qPCR shipping date, some classes based around that
   etc...what are folks interested in?

Schedule some ongoing community meetups. We don't need to limit ourselves to these, but some really successful meetups at BioCurious include:
   Working on a bioprinter (Caris already has a great meetup going!)
   Building a fluid handling robot
   A weekly meetup involving plant genetics
   A bioreactor project

I found the incubator around 3:55am...so openhouse still works in the newlab.
